Wolfenstein: Youngblood succeeded in doing something I didn’t think possible: killing all enthusiasm I had for the series. Sure, the gunplay still feels great but that doesn’t matter when the entire product is hampered by tone-deaf mechanics that are trying to fix a game that wasn’t broken.
As someone who got to go see an actual supercross race, the game just didn’t grab me like the real thing did, but this is a product that’s 100% not made for me. Honestly, you probably already knew whether or not you were going to love this game before you even read this review.
Killing giant monsters in games is always fun, and Extinction has created a solid foundation for a great game. It’s just that what’s here isn’t much to justify its high price tag considering how much of an afterthought the campaign is and how all the other game-modes are practically identical.
